    This was our 5th or 6th visit to Madelaine's Barn, need we say more! It has become our home from home and we love our visits here. The barn, it's quality, the situation, so near the Quay, the proximity to the shops and the pace of life means we have such a relaxing time. Not having a fire at home means that we really enjoy the log burner and curling up with our books. Unfortunately, due to illness we could not get out and do our usual walks, so we came straight home to re book for September and are devastated to find the barn is booked. Never mind it will have to be next February.

    Perfect location, lovely conversion very well equipped property. Plenty of light from the large roof windows. Handy for the shops and restaurants. Shame the fish shop was shut, but it was due to illness. I hope he is fully recovered.

    Super holiday cottage, it would have been lovely to have had easy access to a washing machine machine without having to call the owners. It makes a huge difference to the amount you pack, and the amount of washing you have to do when you return! You could call the owners to arrange use of a machine but that kind of jars you out of a relaxed holiday experience. Beautiful barn conversion which was perfectly clean and well presented.

    An excellent base for a stay in Wells. Both style and substance - a beautiful barn conversion with good facilities, including kitchen equipment that enabled us to cook interesting meals from scratch, using ingredients from Wells-next-the-Sea's excellent small shops. This was our fourth stay in Wells and the best accommodation by far.

    Great place and location, parking an issue, wells is one of our favourite sea side places. Only a few negatives, the kitchen needs to have more utensils no garlic press,or cheese grater, and the most impractical cast iron fry pan . But apart from little things like that a fantast place to stay. So please sort the kitchen.

    We loved Madeleine's barn. It was very well equipped, comfortable and exceptionally clean (we've stayed in a lot of self-catering cottages.) It is very central and very convenient. To address a couple of concerns elsewhere: it is quiet despite being central. There was small amount of noise from the working men's club one night but it really wasn't loud and certainly could not be heard from the bedrooms (and I would describe us as 'noise-sensitive'!). Also I would say that it is was perfectly safe for 18 month old: it's not clear from the pictures but their are doors between the stairs and the main living area and he quickly was able to manage the small step down from the kitchen area to the living area. All in all highly recommended.

    Great location. Beautifully designed property. Only thing that would comment on were that dining chairs were a bit uncomfortable and sofas did not provide much support. As my husband had a bad back at the time we noticed this more than we might normally have. In summary, though a delightful property and we really enjoyed our stay. The owners had left a thoughtful welcome of wine and flowers which were much appreciated.

    This was our third holiday at Madeleine's Barn. We find the location ideal, there are some excellent local shops selling fresh produce. It is wonderful to able to walk from the door, either to the beach or across fields into woodland to go bird and wildlife spotting.
